First Day Of Kindergarten

The first day of kindergarten is almost here!  It has been so difficult waiting and waiting.  It has been a lot of fun meeting each of you and your child during the assessments.  Finally we get to begin our year together on Monday, August 26th.

T, Th,& F:
Morning kindergarten begins at 9:00 am and ends at 11:40am
Afternoon kindergarten begins at 12:40pm and ends at 3:15pm

Reminder:  Mondays we have a different schedule
     AM Kindergarten:  9:00-11:15am
     PM Kindergarten:  12:00-2:30pm

Morning students will be walked outside to the front parking lot.  Mrs. Gillies' class and Miss Leber's class will both exit the south west doors and Mrs. Hales's class and Mrs. King's class will exit out the front office doors.  You are welcome to use the student pick up lane to drive by and pick up your child.  Please refrain from coming to the classroom after school to pick up your child as it clogs the hallway and disrupts other classes in session.  The teachers will be outside with the students to ensure their safety.  If you are late picking your child up he/she will be waiting in the front office.

Afternoon students may also be met at the outside doors and they will remain with the teacher on duty until picked up by a parent.  We encourage older brothers and sisters to pick up their kindergarten sibling from the classroom.  If an older brother or sister will be picking up a kindergartener he/she will remain in the classroom until the sibling comes to the classroom.

It may take a few days to get into a routine so please be patient with us as we work to keep your children safe.  Thank you.

See you Tuesday!

Save Your Shoe Boxes

Sometime during the first few weeks of school we will be having each student make a "shoebox" library/literacy box.  This box will be used by your child (at home) throughout the year to hold his/her literacy supplies such as mini books, pencils, alphabet cards, sight word cards, etc.  This is a great way to give your child a special place of his/her own to store important reading items.

Each child will need to have an empty shoe box or similar type of box.  Please save any shoe boxes you may encounter so we can provide a box for every kindergartener for this project.  You are welcome to send the boxes to school with your child at any time.  Thank you for your help!

Thank You

A big thanks to those who were able to attend our open house.  It was wonderful meeting all of you and showing you our classrooms. We appreciate all of the support and excitement we felt from each of you.  This is going to be a wonderful year.

This week we will be conducting assessments for all of the kindergarten students.  The assessment will take at least 30 minutes.  As the appointments are scheduled only 30 minutes apart it is important that you arrive on time for your appointment.   If you are unsure of your scheduled time or still need to schedule an assessment please contact the front office (801-798-4480).  Thank you!
